David’s Favorite Items: A picture of my daughter, Zoé Valentina; an Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter — the same model used by Cormac McCarthy — purchased for £20 at a shop in the Portobello Market in London; a 1969 Gibson Hummingbird guitar, a family heirloom inherited from my father; VEGAS, a novel that inspired my early writing; a classic Yashica camera that still uses something called “film”
A seasoned, award-winning journalist and author, David has a facility with the English language and a penchant for content development and storytelling strategies.
As a serial innovator in multimedia journalism, he considers his greatest professional achievement to be the launch of the first daily newspaper-branded video series in South Florida, when he created the acclaimed high school mini-documentary football series “The Season” during the 2007 high season. The show ran for three seasons and was consistently the most viewed video offering on Herald.com.
Over his career, David has helped build numerous content-oriented brands, including Asset Recovery Watch, the International Association for Asset Recovery and PODER Hispanic Magazine. These days, as the firm’s editorial director leading projects along multiple media platforms, he wordsmiths and crafts scripts for RockOrange, helping to tell our clients’ stories in new and engaging ways.
A veteran reporter for outlets such as The Miami Herald and PODER Hispanic magazine, David’s words can be read in numerous publications. His reporting has received several awards from the Associated Press Sports Editors Association and the National Association of Hispanic Publications.
